We're often asked what space a jib will take up within an event space, largely due to 'seat kills' as well as physical area. Below is a rough guide of what footprint each different length of jib will require.
As a jib operates in a circular radius from the central pivot this will obviously differ depending on what degree of rotation is required. For example, if a jib is to be sited along a wall, then it will be more likely to need a 180 degree swing than full 360 degree movement.
Please always feel free to call and clarify your thinking and requirements, so we can make sure we'll have enough space to deliver the very best results for your project. We've worked in most venues now too, so have lots of tips and advice based on previous experiences.
